Went to Best Buy last week with my DW and their camera inventory looked like they were going to close the department. All we saw was last years stuff. Way to many of the pedestals were empty. And, there were no clerks in the department. I ended up buying her a Panasonic FZ150 from Amazon. Even B&H didn't have it. I searched Fry's online hoping to find it in stock at a local store. 42nd Street Photo had it for a better price, but they wanted a fortune for 2 day shipping. We also tried Target and Costco.
